Bundle Your Apps Like a Boss

Containers have revolutionized the way that modern, cloud-native, web-scale applications are being built and run. Kubernetes is a Google developed, open sourced container orchestration/scheduling software that is the dominant means of deploying and managing those applications. As the rate at which companies embark on digital transformations accelerates, experience with the Docker/Kubernetes stack is becoming an increasingly important and valuable skill.

The course will provide you a review of fundamental Docker container concepts (definitions, architectures, function). You will then learn about Kubernetes architecture and function, how Kubernetes stacks up to other COEs (and why it is the leading COE solution), and, most importantly, how to use the software. During lab exercises, you will build your own Docker container application image and then used Kubernetes to deploy and scale containers running that application.

If you need to understand how this technology relates to the products you are developing or considering purchasing, are considering developing cloud-native applications, or want to be up to speed on the technology that is operating the cloud for that next job interview, this course will give you tactical experience with the two technologies that increasingly underlie modern cloud-based infrastructures and applications.

Recommended Prep:

Experience with Linux command line will be helpful

How to Juggle Those Packages

So you've built your app. Or your database. Or whatever your workload is. Now you want to get it running, and you want to do it both quickly and elegantly.

Enter Helm.

Helm makes it super-easy to install standard workloads on Kubernetes. And with the magic of the integrated Helm Charts feature, it provides a model to describe even the most complex Kubernetes applications. The best part? It does all this repeatably and reliably.

In this course, you will learn in detail about the above-mentioned Helm features, how it integrates with Kubernetes, and--perhaps most importantly--you will get hands-on experience with actually using Helm to deploy, upgrade and manage an application.

If you want to simplify your deployments, you need to know about Helm.

Total App Domination

This course builds on the "Bundle Your Apps Like a Boss" curriculum and looks at more advanced Docker and Kubernetes topics, including:

  • container networking
  • container storage
  • best-practices of managing cloud-native applications

Moving beyond the install, "Total App Domination" focuses on the ongoing operations of your app, including the tools needed to keep your Container Orchestration Environment (COE) and the applications it is managing healthy and resilient.

Lecture-based content is reinforced with hands-on lab exercises that serve as starting points for building your own Kubernetes environments.

Whether you need to understand how this technology relates to the products you are developing (or considering purchasing), are considering developing cloud-native applications, or want to be up to speed on the latest cloud technology before your next job interview, this course will give you experience with the two technologies that increasingly underlie modern cloud-based infrastructures and applications.

The training is intended to be tactical, with the expectation that--beyond a fundamental understanding of principles presented--you will be ready and able to use Docker and Kubernetes by the end of this course.
